SURVEY:Please read, for scholastic purposes.

	Please note this message is being crossposted to a large number
of groups.  I am sorry for any inconvenience, but there are members of
many newsgroups that I wish to reach , and this is the only way that
I can accomplish this.  Thank you for your understanding.


	My name is Bob Gajarsky.  I am a graduate level management student, 
and am conducting a survey for one of my classes.  It would greatly help my 
studies if you could take a few minutes and complete the following survey.  
All results will be kept completely confidential, and your e-mail addresses 
will not be seen by anyone but me.
	Also, I am only looking for complete surveys from people who are
actually out in the workplace as computer programmers, as opposed to those 
(like me) who are students.  Additionally, I would request that only people 
who work in the United States reply to this.  Thank you in advance for your
